Commands

Opening the Console

Commands are run on the console. To open it, press ` (the key above TAB). Note that this key generally only exists in this form on English keybords (ANSI US, ISO UK, ...).
If you for example have a German keyboard you'll notice that this key is located left of BACKSPACE but won't open the console when you press it.
To open your console you'll either have to switch to the English (US) layout before starting the game or rebinding the key to open console.

Rebinding the console

Make sure you updated Northstar to version v1.5.0 or higher.
The console can only be bound to "`" or one of the function keys "F1" - "F12"
To rebind it open Titanfall and navigate to Controls > Settings > Key Binds and change the "Toggle Developer Console" bind.
If the "Toggle Developer Console" field is missing you can either disable all mods that don't start with Northstar. or rebind it manually.
To rebind it manually make sure neither Titanfall nor Northstar are running, then go to My Documents\Respawn\Titanfall2\local\ and open settings.cfg. Look for the line containing toggleconsole, i.e.
1
bind "`" "toggleconsole"
Copied!
and replace the ` key with your prefered key to open console. So if you want to open console with F5, change the line to
1
bind "F5" "toggleconsole"
Copied!
